  1. Yesterday I did walk in the morning, but when evening came i felt stifled and a little bored in my apartment. That can lead down a bad path. So I put on my walking shoes and headed out to the evening air. It felt good, I stayed away from the fridge. After I came home and took a cool shower I was ready to simply relax and enjoy the evening.
  2. Hi Cheryl, , my gosh girlfriend, I have missed you. Thank you for letting me know where you are. I am browsing around trying to find a good fit. I will check it out. I think I might use the blog also. Weigh in was wonderful. Down 4.2. I know it is 1st week honeymoon period but whatever, it feels good to see the scale moving in the right direction. Now the real work begins. But so far, so good. It actually feels good to be taking control of my actions instead of being controlled by my emotions.
  3. Thanks ladies. This week has been going really well. I am making good choices, tracking and feeling motivated for the 1st time in awhile. I'm kind of excited for weigh in tomorrow
  4. Hello BCBer's. I have been missing for 3 or 4 years now. Last week I went back to WW and it felt like going home. After a long break I am ready to re-embrace the program and get control of my health and my weight. I made Lifetime in 2003 but really struggled to stay there. So much has changed in my personal life now this truly feels like a brand new start. In fact when I went back I told them "treat me like brand new". I have a new number, a new starting weight and I am ready rock it. See you around the boards, Have a great day,
  5. My go to food changes periodically. Right now its the zero point WW soup. For the last month or so I have been making it on Sundays to have for lunch most days of the week. I have to say though, I start each day with oatmeal
  6. Thanks for posting. That was fun to watch.
  7. I weigh in on Saturday morning and I mostly try to be consistant in my clothes. Right now I am weighing in in jeans and lightweight shirt. I figure if I wear jeans every week any loss is really me. During summertime tho I am in shorts or sundress, something lightweight. The hardest part is weigh in is not until 8:30 and I have to be moderate with my coffee. 2 cups and nothing after 7:15. And then of course breakfast is after also. And a sf vanilla latte!
  8. That was cool. Thanks for posting!
  9. Merry Christmas Buddies. This is the time to celebrate and enjoy the day. I am blessed to have a sister who is WW also and we are gathering at her house tonight. Yes, there will be foods outside of WW but we will also have veggie/fruit trays, sf jello dessert, salsa, I am going to make the deviled eggs w/ plain yogurt instead of mayo (this is an experiment), baked chicken tenders, sourdough bread. Apple cider for the drink. Today is the last day of my week and I have 29 dailys and 21 weeklys to use. Also I am going to take a walk and earn a few more AP this afternoon. I have plan, but I also plan to enjoy myself and my family. Tomorrow is easy for me. I am just home with my son and making tacos for Christmas dinner (our tradition). Celebrate your holiday in whatever tradition is in your house. Enjoy your family and loved ones, treat yourself well and have a blessed holiday.
  10. Wow, I can see how you would want to avoid that scale. Any chance you could weigh on it and then test on the one next to you? Just to see if that is real or an illusion. I do think WW calibrates their scales periodically ( I don't how often) but the floor its on can have alot to do with how it weighs. I would ask for a test drive.
  11. I want to give thanks also.....many of our are the same but bear repeating. 1. I have healthy food in my kitchen..that is a blessing so many do not have. 2. I love to walk and have a safe area to be in and strong legs to carry me. 3. I have a great support system, online and real life. 4. I have a job to support me affording my food and WW fees. I am grateful for this, especially these days. 5. My family accepts my WW variations for the holiday meals as normal now. 6. Our water is safe and clean. I turn on the faucet, there is as much as I want. 7. My meetings are always there for me. If I have been gone, no judgement, I am welcomed back. 8. I am grateful to have the points system during the holidays. Its a built in safety net for me. Thanks Lillie, for reminding to take a moment and sit in gratitude. May your holidays be full and joyful.
  12. Isn't it great that every day, every minute is a beginning? We are brand new over and over again. Thanks Quoteboy.
  13. I feel your pain. Good for you for recognizing the pitfalls and getting yourself out of the way. Stay strong.
  14. This sounds good. I am making it tonight.

    Cola chicken

    Bumping this up. If you havn't tried it you are missing out. This is on the regular menu at our house.
  16. I am looking forward to the change. I was not too happy at first realizing all my tools, (WW scale, calculator, recipes, etc) would be obsoleted. But you know what, I need some change. I have been doing this program so long and I need something fresh. I am looking forward to looking up points again, testing out new recipes, having new challenges whatever they are. I am hopng to recapture that honeymoon feeling. I am looking at this as a fresh new start that will take me back to goal.
  17. Thanks for posting that. Lots of good suggestions and reminders.
  18. Bumping this classic up for the season
  19. What alot of great ideas. Thanks so much. I wish I could join a gym but finances prohibit that right now. I have really enjoyed being a memeber in the past. I have free weights here, treadmill, some dvds. I think I am leaning toward the kettleball and some new dvds. I have WATP ones which I like, I just want to branch out some. I don't FitTV is on my lineup but probably I can go online and check out some different programs. I think a shred one is a great place to start. I am kind of excited about switching up my routine.
  20. So I like to walk outside but here comes the cold wet weather. And the dark. I still will get out there as much as I can but it won't be like the freedom of spring and summer. So what is everyone doing for colder weather exercise? I heard kettleballs are a great workout. Walmart has them for less than $20. I am space in the living room for my treadmill but that will have to wait until the holidays clear out. I have some WATP dvds but what fresh new dvds do you all like? Share please.....I needs ideas. What is working for you?
  21. Have you seen the bagel thins that are out? My coworker had one the other day and it looked good. I think she bought them at Safeway. Same points as sandwich thins.....1 !!
  22. Congratulations on your loss. Thats awesome, you must be feeling so good. I agree, if the urge doesn't subside its a craving and those don't just disappear. When that happens for me I usually figure it into my plan. Once I plan, count and consume it the craving is gone. Denying just makes it grow and I eat all around it trying to avoid it.

    Scale Fear

    I have been weighing in for years and I still have anxiety. I too always feel better when its over, good or bad. Just be consistant. If you do something extreme one week you have to do it the next week and so on. Thats crazy making. Step up, look at it, own it, step off. Its just a number.
  24. Hi Miss Cheryl, thanks for the start up. Nice to shop, walk, get the laundry done. Glad you bought for yourself also at Kohls. I have $10 off I have to use soon, by next weekend I think. I am back from walk, 3 miles. Did 3 last night also. Yesterday I spent almost all day rearranging the living room. Moved all the furniture around and so also vacuuming, dusting. I was sweating all afternoon, a good workout on its own. I changed things around to make room for the Christmas tree easily this year. Then after that is over I plan to bring tmill in living room to work on a winter tmill challenge. Long range plans. Hey we are having spaghetti tonight too. I have meat sauce in the cpot. Also salad, melon and sourdough. Ok buddies...lets have a good week. Who is next?
  25. Welcome back! Glad you are home and healing. Things will only get better from here. Take gooid care of yourself.
